Conquered:

Completely done for, his to have and hold
— that’s what love is: my life as me’s all through —
possessed, surrendered, kept in check, controlled.

What he’s got no use for of mine’s been sold
at deep discount. What’s his he’ll go through too,
completely done for, his to have and hold.

I don’t expect I’ll ever get paroled;
from here on out, my own dreams are taboo.
— possessed, surrendered, kept in check, controlled.

I see me serving him as we grow old.
That’s why my love for him’s as good as true,
completely done for, his to have and hold.

A fair exchange, I think: a band of gold
in place of pearls I once mistook I knew
— possessed, surrendered, kept in check, controlled.

Fools fall in love with fools, so we get told.
A fool-loved fool am I to say “I do”—
possessed, surrendered, kept in check, controlled,
completely done for, his to have and hold.
